O'Neal credits Morgan for repair of relationship with daughter Tatum

August 5, 2011 - Washington

Ryan O'Neal has credited Piers Morgan with helping to repair his relationship with daughter Tatum.

The father and daughter had become estranged after the actor began dating Farrah Fawcett in the late 1970s, but they reunited following her death in 2009.

Relations became strained again when they filmed their U.S. reality TV show, 'Ryan and Tatum: The O'Neals', and spoke about their issues as they promoted it.

The turning point came during separate appearances on Piers Morgan Tonight.

"I stayed at Sharon Osbourne's Malibu beach house last weekend and Ryan O'Neal has a house next door," Contactmusic quoted Morgan as telling Kathy Griffin, who was a guest on his show.

"He was playing frisby with his dog on the beach and he told me because of that double interview they've now got back talking and things are moving in the right direction. I was very pleased to hear that," he added.
